Exhibitor Testimonials

Here's what some of our exhibitors said about the show:

“Music & Drama Education Expo is one of the best global exhibitions of it’s kind. The footfall at the event brings a mix of diverse, discerning and studious group of musicians who are serious about understanding the many strands of the music industry. The event has been hugely rewarding for us in marketing our brand and directly helping customers to make informed decisions about purchasing.”

Shea Lolin

“Music & Drama Education Expo is a golden opportunity for us to meet existing and potential new customers and even with the technology of today you can’t beat meeting people face to face. The Expo also gives us the opportunity to bring a wide range of educational music that people might not know and it gives them the opportunity to browse and discuss their musical needs with us directly.”

Adrian Connell
Manager, Universal Edition
“We find that both the London and Manchester Music & Drama Education Expo’s are extremely important events. They allow us to meet a large number of music teachers all gathered together in the same place, rather than having to spend a lot of time and money on individual visits. There is always a good buzz at these busy shows, with teachers keen to interact and find out what’s new. We always enjoy meeting new and old friends at the Expo, and hearing how our products are helping their students. Steinberg fully support Music & Drama Education Expo and look forward to the next show.”

Richard Llewellyn
UK Education Manager, Steinberg

“Music & Drama Education Expo is now a pivotal event in the music calendar that brings together all of those working for excellence in music education. This is something that is important for the Music Teachers' Association to be a part of and we look forward to 2016 where we can meet, support and encourage thousands of music teachers through both the Expo and Music Teacher Awards.”

Keith Ayling
National Media Manager, Music Teachers' Association
"The Musicians’ Union have been involved with the Expo since the offset and it is now an integral part of our calendar of events. The two days offer a great array of debate, workshops and presentations on all the current issues affecting those working in education as well as fantastic networking opportunities for those attending. At the MU stand we like the opportunity the Expo gives to engage with members and those interested in the work we are doing and it provides an invaluable chance to showcase the work we are doing representing musicians who teach."

Diane Widdison
National Organiser: Education and Training, The Musicians' Union

“Alfred Music have attended every Expo since inception. The opportunities Expo provides for music publishers to talk directly to teachers, for teachers to talk to authors and composers, and to receive that one-to-one feedback, positive or otherwise, on specific publications is a rare and precious one which we value highly.”

Andrew Higgins
Director of Sales and Marketing, Alfred Publishing
